Each day is a new adventure. I know you have heard this before. How have you related it to your own life? After 25 years of word processing jobs, I decided to start my own business as a personal organizer for seniors (five years ago). So many seniors are having problems reaching for items. Many have moved to senior facilities and took everything with them. Of course, their lifestyle changed and many things will never be used.
As many of you know, I was diagnosed legally blind two years ago. I see clearly but unfortunately I have limited field of vision (how much I can see at one glance). Now I rely on others to drive me. To make it more difficult, I used to ride the Smart Bus. I moved to Waterford two months ago and there is no public transportation.
In preparation for this move, I decided to become involved with the Waterford Senior Network of services for our older population. It was important having a disability to look beyond what can’t be done. I looked at what can be done.
